Comments about RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment - 1 oz:
I used a sample of this brightener a few nights ago and unfortunately woke up with two new blemishes. I think it might be the mica, as I use a serum from PC with many of the same ingredients with no problems, and I have had trouble with "illuminating" products containing mica in the past. I have 40 year-old, very sensitive skin with mild rosacea.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not much effect
from San Francisco, CA
About Me Minimalist
I've used this for a few months and agree with some other users that while it does have some temporary, instant silky/glowy effect on skin at the time of application, there is no long term effect. Brown spots and wrinkles remain the same with no change. But the product does give you a mild "instant radiance" that it claims to give you for a moment. Can work as a good primer under foundation.

Update: Speeds Up Lightening with Hydroquinone
from Houston, TX
I wanted to add an update to my previous post. I had been using a 10% glycolic acid + 2% Hydroquinone product for a couple of months before I began using the Resist Brightening Treatment consistently. The combination seems to have sped up the lightening effect on my existing sun spots. So I think this has a synergistic effect with the Hydroquinone. A very stubborn spot under my eye, that resisted IPL is now almost gone since using this combination of ingredients! Awesome!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Didn't do anything for me
from New Jersey
I used to whole tube and didn't see any difference in my skin, especially with my brown spots. Will not be purchasing again.

I use as a daytime eye cream underneath sunscreen
I already use other skin brightening treatments at night but wanted to try something light to use during the day as a primer/light serum before my sunscreen. I found it was a little too shiny for my oily skin, however i did notice it worked perfectly under my eyes before the sunscreen and concealer. you only need a tiny amount and let it sink in and set. Love it!

from Boise, ID
This product took my skin to a whole new level. I mix a small amount in my palm with Resist C15 and Resist hyaluronic acid booster before applying. The result is radiant skin that looks and feels younger. I love it! Have been using it for over a year now with continued excellent results.

It does brighten skin, but only temporarily. I see no long-term effect. Pleasant but not worth the price for makeup.

Excellent makeup primer!
from Atlanta, GA
I am pleased with quality of the brightening treatment. I am a very long time Paula's Choice user and try most things she puts out at least once. I've only been using this for about three weeks, so I can't comment on the very long term results, but thus far I can say it is a great addition to my skin care arsenal. Also, this works absolutely beautifully under makeup. I usually use Hourglass's primer which is very expensive. I was in a rush one morning and applied my makeup directly on top of this brightener and was so surprised how it worked even better than my usual primer! And of course the ingredients are far more beneficial for skin, so I'm happy to give up my Hourglass primer for this product. For makeup wearers, it kills two birds with one stone. Thanks Paula & team!

Won't buy again
I used the whole tube and saw no difference in my skin. My brown spots are still exactly as they were and my skin is neither better, nor worse. I will not buy again.
I have used samples of this product off and on for 2 weeks. While I cannot speak to the long term effects (yet), I can say that when worn under my Resist Super Light Moisturizer +SPF, my complexion looks way brighter- like by a shade or two. I don't get an "eagle effect," but I certainly can tell the difference. And the texture is silky, absorbs easily, and plays nice with my other serums and moisturizer. Also seems to play well with my Rx retinoid.Niacinamide and Acetyl Glucosamine (in my opinion) will likely be effective in the long term at preventing further hyperpigmentation. I already use a product with hydroquinone, which Paula says is the "gold standard" for reducing hyperpigmentation that has already appeared. I plan to buy a full sized tube and using this in conjunction with the hydroquinone to maintain the results I see from the hydroquinone product. I really like this product. I will grant a fifth star once I have been using it long term and see the fruits of the "long term relationship."
